men's hanes t-shirt, vintage 1980s leopard silk jacket, seven jeans, HOPE stockholm pumps, Baggu reusable bag (with sack of onions inside), vintage Coach kelly bag
a while ago i was inspired by some photos of a past-season animal print APC jacket, and so i was really excited when i stumbled upon this lovely silk vintage animal print zip jacket on etsy. the leopard print is just right, and after taking it to my trusty dry-cleaner/tailor for a freshening up and some tweaks (i had the sleeves taken in a bit), it is now perfect as a lightweight spring/summer piece. (an alternative to the ubiquitous denim jacket!) i'm going to wear this all the time come spring.
some of you may remember that i refreshed an old banana republic camel coat a few months ago by getting the sleeves shortened. i think it's one of the most economical ways to enhance an existing item in your wardrobe or a vintage find.
have you 'remodeled' any items in your closet recently? let me know if you have any fun DIY or style/fit tweaking tips and ideas!
p.s.: just realized that i'm kind of channeling an 80s vibe in these photos. ha! :P but whatever. i'll balance out my undying love for skinny jeans and hot pink and leopard print by staying clear of the shoulder pads!
